Physical Education A-level KIN at Invictus Sixth Form

Course description

The AS and A Level Physical Education qualifications allow students to play to their strengths and gain dynamic theoretical and practical skills for further education or a career in the sporting industry. The course has been designed to challenge and support students as well as giving them an insight into different areas of physical education such as applied anatomy and physiology, skill acquisition and sport in society.

Entry requirements

Specific Entry Requirements:

Would ideally like a B in PE GCSE. It would also be an advantage to have a B grade in Biology.


70% of AS = Written exam: 2 hours - 84 marks (including some multiple choice questions)

30% of AS = 90 marks available for performance in 1 sport and the completion of verbal/written coursework (10% of 30%)

Future opportunities

A Level PE is not an easy subject to take. It is certainly not an “easy option” and so is highly recognised by all the Universities. Studying PE at A Level can be a useful ‘stepping stone’ towards a variety of career options in the sporting sector

This could be in the leisure industry, teaching, physiotherapy, coaching, sports psychology, sports journalism and sports medicine, to name but a few

However, due to its diversity and well respected theoretical foundations, there are many different career paths that the course can lead on to - not just sport related!
